The Beauty by Night experience allows you to fully experience the best of Rotorua at night. Forget the bars or clubs, this is an unforgettable and rare cultural experience which will leave you inspired.

Dressed in traditional wear and set outside in the natural bush, you'll truly feel like you have been transported back in time. Learn about the traditions of the Maori people through legends, dancing and singing. You'll be able to watch as your feast is lifted from the traditional earthen oven made in the ground, and share in the delight with your fellow participants. At the end of the night, the famous and sacred Haka will be performed for you. Your night continues as you tour the Rainbow Springs Nature Park after hours, you'll be able to see the native animals and bush illuminated by the stars and colorful lights. This night truly connects you to the people and natu of New Zealand.
